short for drum 'n' bass. a style of electronica that incorporates fast tempos (150~180 bpm) syncopated breakbeats, and a heavy bassline. can incorporate various styles of other music; jazz, funk, hip-hop, are the most common. Sometimes called the 'black man's techno'. often times the word is used interchangibly with jungle, but a lot of people think that jungle and dnb are different. sub-genres include ambient dnb, techstep, 2-step, darkstep, etc. a man named roni size, who isn't that popular now, basically started the whole style of music. its cool.

Do Nothing Bitch. Popularized by Ronda Rousey in a video leading up to her fight in UFC 190, where she said, "I have this one term for the kind of woman that my mother raised me to not be. I call it a 'do-nothing bitch'. Or, I call it a 'DNB' a lot of the time. She's a bitch who just tries to be pretty and be taken care of by someone else"
The only time that DNB stepped in a gym it was to use the mirror for her makeup.
